Warm Me Up part 1

College wasn’t nearly as terrifying as people made it seem. It wasn’t much of a change. At least not for Will. Being independent wasn’t that different from how it was back home. His mom worked all day and he watched his sister while she did, which meant he had to learn to cook and clean and help her with homework while managing his own.

He’d looked forward to college. To being able to be his age instead of a fatherly brother. What he hadn’t looked forward to were the awkward friendless days and lack of transportation or money. He would forget to eat sometimes, but he didn’t want to make food in bulk like he always did because he was on his own. He had no one to share with.

It wasn’t too bad. He was good at socializing, at talking to people he met in the café or on his way to class or in class. They were just never official friends. They weren’t people Will saw himself hanging out with off campus, or people he found himself taking up to his dorm to watch a movie or play a game.

His campus was relatively small. A college that was hard to get into but not very well known. He saw a lot of familiar faces, but none of them had names in his mind.

As he walked with his head bent over his phone, someone rammed into him at a corner. “Oh s-” He stopped when a pair of hands pushed him back and looked up to see a dark haired guy scowling at him through a grunt of annoyance. “S-sorry,” Will muttered.

The guy gave him half an eyeroll and walked away. Will felt his cheeks flare with embarrassment and anger. He shut his eyes and took a breath and kept walking. As he walked into class, a guy he usually sat beside turned to him excitedly.

“Dude!” he exclaimed, taking Will by surprise because he hardly ever initiated conversation if not for a partner discussion. “Listen, the café is having an open mic night and me and buddy are performing. I wanted to know if you’d come to, you know show support.”

“Oh. Sure what time?” he answered.

“Seven. It goes on until nine, but you don’t have to stay the whole time.” Will nodded and jotted it down on his hand. “Thanks, man.”

“Yeah, no problem.” He smiled and turned his attention to the professor as class started.

Will figured it’d be fun to hear people sing and play their instruments at this thing, so he was actually looking forward to it. He was looking forward to it so much, he got there half an hour early and found himself seated near the front, reading a book as he waited.

cant forget my best son

  • Annabeth: So how long have you been in love with Jason?
  • Nico: That’s disgusting. And wrong. I don’t even get– why would– I’ve never loved anyone, anywhere. It’s none of your- you have- the nerve, the audacity, Jason is a praetor, technically. And he is terrible, face-wise. And how- how- do I know, frankly, that you’re not in love with him?Maybe you are. Maybe you’re trying to throw me off? Hmm check and mate.

Percico holding hands for the first time commission for @binyeum

Dating the Swim Team Captain does have its perks, doesn’t it, Nico? He’s so embarrassed. Percy’s goal is to make him flustered and happy at the same time and Nico wearing knee high Converse was something I never knew I needed. 

Warm Me Up Pt 18

From now on I’m just going to link the first chapter for those who want to start the story and the chapter before the update for those who want to refresh their memory. Also, the end of every chapter should have a link to the next. :)

Also, I was listening to Little Things by One Direction and Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol on repeat for this one. I think I’ll mention the songs that inspire each chapter at the beginning :)

It was the first time he’d be celebrating Valentine’s Day. It was the first time he wasn’t dreading it completely. It was the first time he didn’t have plans to simply horde food in his room and watch Netflix from the moment he got home until the day was over.

It was the first time he was in a relationship and wouldn’t feel so lonely. If anything he felt excited when the red and pink decorations started going up in the stores.

Though it made him a little nervous that the fourteenth was two days away and Nico hadn’t mentioned any special date or event. Will had learned by now that Nico was someone who had to be asked direct questions in order for him to have an answer.  

So while they ate at the dining hall for lunch, Will nudged him for his attention. “Hey, are we… doing anything for Valentine’s Day?”

The fork slipped from Nico’s hand and clattered to his plate as his eyes widened and his face went blank. “Oh fuck, that’s a thing,” he breathed. “Shit.” Will raised an eyebrow and crossed his arms. “I… I’m used to ignoring Valentine’s Day, it honestly completely slipped my mind that it’s a thing couples do. Oh man, please don’t be mad.”

Will laughed and shook his head as he put the fork back in Nico’s hands. “Relax,” he said. “I was just asking. I thought it’d be fun to do something like other couples do.”

“Of course. Anything. What do you want to do?” Will shrugged and kept eating. “Well, we can go all out- tuxes, fancy dinner, candles, and stuff. Or we can keep it small- a picnic, pj’s, movies.” He took his hand and held it, a small smile on his face. “Anything you want.”

Will smiled and ran his hand through his mess of hair. “Sounds like a plan,” he said. “It’s the first time I’d celebrate it, you know with a boyfriend, not just… a group of distant friends or something.” He chuckled and felt his cheeks redden as he spoke because Nico was getting that look on his face.

late night tv watching jercicobeth doodles to try and coax my motivation back to life. I think it’s working! I know I’m never going to finish this but I like the look of it too much not to post it.

I feel Nico though, trying to sleep with the tv on is hard /:

Bianca and Nico di Angelo

“You have to promise to keep my sister safe.”
”I… That’s a big thing to promise, Nico, on a trip like this. Besides, she’s got Zoe, Grover, Thalia-”
”Promise,” he insisted.
”I’ll do my best. I promise that.”
”Get going then!” he said. “Good luck!”

Aesthetics for the di Angelo kids, and this is my present for @italianghostking but I screwed up so its now belated birthday present…. ish. I’ve seen so many people do aesthetics and I always thought it was easy, but its actually waaaay harder than I thought?!(wow look at all the excuses but in all honesty it was actually harder than I thought) Anyway, hAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY NICK/NICO! 
P.s. @italianhuntress this is kinda for you too. 

dukeofqueer  asked:

Hello there! I just read your analysis of Nico and Will's relationship, and I wanted to know, based on your analyses, who would be a better match for Nico? Or at the very least, who'd be a better friend to him?

Let me tell you how excited I got when I saw this ask because, like, this is such a good question and I think it very much needs to be discussed!

Now, let’s take a look at platonic relationships first because that’s what Nico really needs. He doesn’t need a boyfriend. He needs a supportive group of friends who can help him feel better about himself and who he is. We can already see this group of friends starting to build in HoH and BoO with both Jason and Reyna. Reyna is especially good for Nico because she has no precedents for Nico and treats him as an equal. She doesn’t think of or care that he’s a son of Hades and, instead, cares for who he is as a person and his abilities in order to get their tasks done. Over the course of BoO they begin to bud into a great friendship that would remain important for Nico for a long time. Jason was the first out of the main 7 to befriend Nico. Not only was Jason the first person to hear about Nico’s sexuality (as if that’s not horrifying enough), but he brushed it off. He didn’t mind. Not only did Jason not mind, he told Nico that he was brave and offered Nico positive reinforcement for something traumatic and difficult for him to deal with. This is a great positive role model that Nico needs in his life to really feel self-positive.

Now, let’s not forget our lovely Hazel. While she’s a little different because she’s Nico’s half-sister, they have a very, very strong relationship with one another. While he doesn’t have Bianca anymore, Nico finally has a family member in his time who trusts him and even understands some of his problems (such as being ostracized for being a child of Hades/Pluto.) Hazel shows that she loves Nico and offers a positive shoulder for Nico to lean on. Much like Reyna and Jason, she needs to be an important, if not the most important, platonic relationship for Nico.

Will, too, could have been a great friendship for Nico as only the second person at Camp Halfblood (if you count Jason part of Camp Halfblood) to offer to befriend Nico. If we look at Will when he isn’t with Nico (since when he’s around Nico, he’s a completely different character,) you can see how kind and caring he is. Will really wants to help people the best to his abilities. Not only that, Will would be Nico’s only openly gay friend (if we’re assuming that Reyna/Jason/Hazel are heterosexual.) Will could have become a positive gay role model for Nico, and help him learn to accept himself.


If we’re looking at romantic relationships though, things become messy. In all honesty, Nico shouldn’t have a relationship this early in his own self actualization. He needs time and friends to help him love himself and look at himself positively. If we really have to pair Nico into a romantic relationship, he needs someone who is okay with Nico’s general introversion and distaste in his sexuality. He needs someone who is entirely comfortable with Nico’s discomfort for many things. The best fit for this is not Will. Since, as I have discussed in other post, does not respect Nico’s comfort zone or boundaries. If we look at other popular ships for Nico: We also have Percico (Percy and Nico), Jasico (Jason and Nico), and Valdangelo (Leo x Nico). Percabeth is never breaking up in canon, not to mention the amount of emotional resentment Nico has had toward Percy makes Percico a bad choice. Valdangelo could have been a great idea as both Nico and Leo deal with a similar issue: They both feel like they’re unloveable and they’ll never find anyone. They deal with it in different ways, though. However, because of how BoO and THO build Leo, this possibly amazing romantic relationship was completely disrupted.

That leaves Jasico. Yes, yes. I know. “You’re a Jasico shipper! Of course!” But let’s look at it shall we? Jason has CONSTANTLY respected Nico from when he knew him to the end of BoO. Jason took the time to get to trust Nico and trusted him, undoubtedly, until the end. Jason was the first person to hear about Nico’s sexuality and not only did Jason not mind, but Jason straight up told Nico that that’s the bravest thing he’s seen someone do. That sort of positive reinforcement adds so much self-love and acceptance. As someone who had to deal with the traumatizing event of having to be forced out, this sort of response when you’re so scared and so inflicted by self hatred honestly feels like heaven. All your fears, if only for a moment, start to fade away. Finally, you feel a little free.

Let’s not forget how Jason reads onto Nico’s touching discomfort and tries to avoid touching him at all costs unless he asks. In canon Jason respects Nico’s comfort zone and who he is as a person. Jason doesn’t care about Nico’s past or who Nico’s godly father is. He has the most amount of respect for Nico out of anyone except for Hazel and Reyna. Jason is genuinely the healthiest and best choice for Nico if we had to ship Nico with someone.

I apologize for how long winded this was, again. But I hope you got some insight into what I think! Thanks for the ask, seriously!
